Everyday, little ones depend on big people for everything they need, from love to a warm bed, and sometimes the little ones come into our lives in unexpected ways.
Evalina’s Egg is a beautifully written story, with charming illustrations, of a selfless, caring, young mouse who gives her all to take in an orphaned egg and lovingly care for it, in spite of risks and struggles for herself. When her community comes around her to support her, she is enveloped in the same care as she gives her egg, and the task becomes much more do-able.
This story of love, community, and sacrifice teaches us about the value of caring for one another in our need and is sure to appeal to anyone who has ever depended on someone bigger and stronger than them. Families of all different shapes and sizes, biological, adoptive, foster, etc, and the communities that surround them will appreciate this sweet story of what it means to risk and sacrifice yourself for someone you love, and come out the other side the one who was rewarded.
